  • Longitudinal Trajectories of Child-to-Parent Violence through Adolescence
    • Abstract: This study examines the level and shape of the trajectory of child-to-mother violence (CMV) and child-to-father violence (CFV) throughout adolescence and associations with exposure to family violence and substance use. An accelerated longitudinal design was used to assess the trajectories of CMV and CFV from age 13 to 17 in 1415 adolescents (712 boys). Measures were collected at four periods that were a year apart. Adolescents completed measures of CMV and CFV at each wave and measures of exposure to family violence and drug abuse at the beginning of the study. The results indicate a negative linear trend, which consists of a general decrease in violence, accompanied by a quadratic component with a peak at the age around 15. The level of CMV was higher than the level of CFV throughout adolescence. Exposure to family violence and drug abuse presented a different profile of association with the longitudinal components of CMV and CFV. The results suggest the importance of initiating interventions early, before age 13, to prevent the rapid peak of violence that occurs between ages 13 and 15.

  • A Good Call': Contextual Factors Influencing Mandated Reporting in
           Domestic Violence Programs
    • Abstract: Domestic violence shelter advocates closely guard the confidentiality of survivors in their shelter programs, yet they are simultaneously mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect. The mandate to report child abuse and neglect may include a child’s exposure to domestic violence, which may be disclosed when assessing danger for program entry. The purpose of this study is to understand what decision making factors influence domestic violence shelter advocates’ decision to override survivor’s confidentiality and report child abuse and neglect. A survey of 142 domestic violence shelter advocates found that advocates that holistically consider the impact of reporting are less inclined to report child abuse and neglect. At the same time, advocates who perceive that their agency has a better relationship with child protective services are more inclined to report child abuse and neglect. Implications of these findings are discussed in relation to research, policy and practice.

  • Frameworks of Causal Inference for Improving Intervention, Prediction, and
           Imagination in Family Violence Research: a Commentary on Rose (2018)
    • Abstract: The purpose of this commentary on Rose (2018) is to address several important reasons why credible causal frameworks are critical to the success of family violence research. The commentary addresses three topics: intervention, prediction, and imagination. These three areas provide justification for why an improvement in causal inference will also yield greater research impact.

  • Identifying how to Engage Men in Domestic Violence Research: a Concept
           Mapping Study
    • Abstract: The Engaging Men project aimed to identify facilitators, societal approaches to and support for domestic violence, and barriers to men’s participation in domestic violence research, assessing the importance of each factor. Participatory concept mapping was used with a convenience sample of men (n = 142) in person and online across Australia, Canada and the United States of America. Engaging Men identified 43 facilitators, societal approaches to and support for domestic violence, and/or barriers to men’s participation in domestic violence research. The strongest facilitators related to external connections, such as concern for women around them. Men also recognized societal approaches to and support for domestic violence and the strongest barriers centered on internal feelings, including fear, shame and guilt about being linked to domestic violence. This study suggests that providing a safe environment for men to express genuine thoughts, feeling and views about domestic violence is vital, yet rarely available in domestic violence research. Therefore, research opportunities need to be more effectively designed and incentivized to address challenging issues identified by men, such as fear, shame and guilt and offer meaningful opportunities to demonstrate positive change.

  • No Credibility without Plausibility: a Response to Lewis and Lanier
    • Abstract: In this commentary I respond to Lewis (2019) and Lanier (2019), building on their critiques and ideas, offering some additional thoughts about the dissemination of the Campbell, Rubin, and Pearl causal frameworks and their potential emergent value to the future of family violence research. I clarify that the central issue to credibility is the plausibility of assumptions, that some widely utilized methods often require researchers to make implausible assumptions, and that there is value to knowing and using all three frameworks.

  • Childhood Polyvictimization, Adult Violent Victimization, and Trauma
           Symptomatology: An Exploratory Study of Prostitution Diversion Program
    • Abstract: Prostitution diversion program participants who have experienced lifelong patterns of abuse, including child polyvictimization and later adult victimization, may exhibit greater trauma symptomatology than participants who have not experienced lifelong abuse. If true, these participants may face unique barriers to successful program completion as a result of their increased trauma symptomatology. This calls into question whether incarceration is an appropriate sanction for program failure. Data from a prostitution diversion program located in Houston, Texas, was used to conduct a series of bivariate analyses that examined whether participants who had experienced multiple types of child abuse: (1) were more criminally involved, (2) were more likely to report adult victimization, and (3) exhibited greater trauma symptomatology relative to program participants who had never experienced child abuse, or only experienced a single type. Participants who had experienced multiple types of child abuse were more likely to report adult victimization and greater trauma symptomatology relative to participants who had not experienced any child abuse. The prostitution diversion program examined in this study contained a subgroup of participants who had experienced multiple types of child abuse, possessed an increased risk of adult victimization, and reported greater trauma symptomatology. These participants are trauma survivors, and may face unique barriers to program completion. Consequently, incarceration is a misguided sanction for program failure, as it may lead to further traumatization.

  • Comment on Frameworks for Causal Inference
    • Abstract: Rose compares three frameworks for causal inference: Potential Outcomes, DAGS, and Campbell’s Framework. I argue that Potential Outcomes is more appropriately thought of as a conceptual analysis of the notion of a causal effect and offer some objections to that analysis. I also contend that DAGS allow for a more precise definition of the concept of confounding variable than the one more typically seen in the social sciences. And I argue that what Rose regards as limitations of Potential Outcomes and DAGS aren’t really limitations. Both Potential Outcomes and DAGS were developed for certain purposes. Rose’s claim about limitations amounts to expecting each to do something it wasn’t designed to do.

  • Frameworks for Credible Causal Inference in Observational Studies of
           Family Violence
    • Abstract: Causal questions pervade family violence research, including how and why violence occurs, how it can be prevented, and how to support survivors. Randomization cannot always be used, but in studies of the effects of known causes, regression based observational methods (e.g., propensity score analysis) can be used. Statistical findings are associational only, however, and plausible assumptions are needed to give findings causal meaning. In this review, I suggest two criteria for plausible assumptions that help support credible causal inferences. I then describe and connect three frameworks that provide standards for specifying assumptions in causal inference: the Rubin potential outcomes framework; the Pearl directed acyclic graph framework; and the Campbell framework of validities (e.g., internal validity). These frameworks are widely accepted across the social sciences, facilitating dissemination and critique. Each has strengths and weaknesses, and in studies of the effects of known causes, they may complement each other. Utilizing the standards given to us by these frameworks to select and articulate the assumptions needed for credible causal inference will impact our understanding of family violence and violence prevention more so than studies that cannot be connected as clearly to such standards.

  • Gender-Based Violence in Senegal: its Catalysts and Connections from a
           Community Perspective
    • Abstract: Gender-based violence is associated with an array of negative health outcomes for women and limits their opportunities to fully participate in society. Only recently have studies begun to explore the interconnectedness of emotional, physical and sexual gender-based violence. This qualitative study sought to understand how men and women in Senegal perceive various forms of gender-based violence, their connections, and who could best promote change among perpetrators of violence. Community focus group discussions that used structured exercises adapted from Participatory Learning and Action group activities were carried out in urban and rural settings in seven regions of Senegal. Groups were sampled for maximum variation within rural and urban settings in each region (n = 28 groups and n = 267 participants). Male and female groups in both urban and rural settings described each form of violence similarly. Examples of emotional violence centered around home finances, neglect, and dependency. Emotional violence between male and female spouses escalated to physically and sexually violent behaviors, uniquely directed at women and girls. Physical violence was described in two levels: acceptable and unacceptable. Sexual violence was described as common within households but unreported. Economic considerations cross-cut each form of violence. The findings from this study contribute to conceptual definitions and understandings of GBV from a community perspective to better inform programmatic and communication approaches for the reduction of GBV in Senegal. Challenges will remain until the global community can more effectively address equitable access to financial resources among the world’s poorest.

  • Mental Health Diagnoses of Youth Commercial Sex Exploitation Victims: an
           Analysis within an Adjudicated Delinquent Sample
    • Abstract: Existing criminology and victimization research suggests that youth victims of commercial sex often have mental health issues stemming from their sex victimization and/or emerging out of their long histories of family abuse, neglect and family conflict. However, what is not known is whether youth commercial sex victims, when compared to adjudicated delinquent, serious adolescent offenders, present unique mental health issues when they contact the juvenile justice system. We use the Pathways to Desistance longitudinal data that contains a sample of 1354 serious, adjudicated, juvenile offenders from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Phoenix, Arizona to address this question. According to our analyses, youths who had ever been paid for sex had significantly higher rates of several mental health disorders when compared to their high risk, adjudicated delinquent peers who had not engaged in commercial sex. We explain our findings concerning the potentially increased mental health diagnoses for youth commercial sex exploitation victims during and after their periods of adjudication.

  • Patterns of Sibling Victimization as Predictors of Peer Victimization in
           Childhood and Adolescence
    • Abstract: We document four patterns of sibling victimization (Persist, New, Desist, and None) across two time points and their association with peer victimization at time two and whether these linkages are apparent in early childhood, middle childhood and adolescence. A telephone survey (N = 1653) was conducted with a nationally representative sample of U.S. parents with children (age 3–9) and adolescents (age 10 to 17). The four patterns differed by age, gender, ethnicity and parent education levels but not family structure. The Persist, New and Desist sibling victimization patterns were associated with a greater likelihood of peer victimization. Sibling victimization patterns were unrelated to peer victimization in early childhood but predictive of peer victimization in middle childhood and adolescence. Findings showed that sibling victimization leaves children and adolescents vulnerable to peer victimization. Children and adolescents who experienced chronic sibling victimization (Persist group) were particularly vulnerable to peer victimization. Eliminating sibling victimization could reduce peer victimization in middle childhood and adolescence.

  • Domestic Violence Exposure and Peer Relationships: Exploring the Role of
           Coercive Control Exposure
    • Abstract: Coercive control—a relational dynamic rooted in one romantic partner’s intentional domination and control over their partner’s daily life using physical violence and nonphysical abuse tactics—has been well-documented in the adult domestic violence (DV) literature for decades. Yet, only recently has coercive control been assessed in the context of DV exposure and few studies have examined exposure to coercive control from the perspective of young adult children. It has been theorized that the inclusion of coercive control may explain inconsistent findings regarding the impact of DV exposure on adjustment domains, particularly peer relationships. Thus, the present study, using an exploratory and formative perspective, examined the relationship between DV exposure and peer relationship experiences (e.g., bullying victimization and perpetration, friendship quality) among a sample of DV-exposed young adults. Data for this study comes from phase two of the Young Adult Live and Learn (Y’ALL) Project. The sample (72.1% female; 74.1% European American) included young adults who were exposed to DV (n = 99) and young adults who were not exposed to DV (n = 48). Exposure to coercive control, controlling for physical violence exposure, was associated with higher levels of bullying victimization and better friendship quality, whereas exposure to more frequent physical violence was associated with higher levels of bullying perpetration. Findings from the present study add to the growing body of literature demonstrating the salience of measuring coercive control when studying youth DV exposure, as coercive control may better explain outcomes, such as peer relationship experiences, above and beyond assessments of physical violence exposure alone.

  • Intimate Partner Violence-Related Fractures in the United States: an
           8 Year Review
    • Abstract: Fractures associated with intimate partner violence (IPV) are devastating injuries that can have lifelong physical and emotional implications. With exception to the facial region, there are very limited epidemiological reports describing the types and location of IPV-related fractures. The objective of this study is to review a national database and describe trends that are associated with IPV-related fractures. An analysis of all adult (18 years and older) was performed using the National Trauma Data Bank from 2007 through 2014. There were 1352 records identified where the patient was diagnosed with an IPVrelated fracture. Women accounted for 83% of the population and the mean age was 37.5 years. Nearly half of the population sustained fractures to the face. Variances among fracture location were observed across age groups. Facial fractures were recorded more in the younger population (18–39 years) when compared to the other age groups (40–59 years and 60+ years), p < 0.001. Alternatively, rib and femur fractures were more commonly seen among survivors aged 60 years and older when compared to the younger age groups, p < 0.001. The ability to identify and respond to survivors of IPV in the healthcare setting is critically important. While facial fractures are particularly common in the presence of IPV, they are not the only type of fractures that may be seen. In many cases healthcare professionals are the first line of defense in identifying suspected IPV cases. The findings of this paper build upon existing literature while also describing IPV-related fractures across the age spectrum.

  • Distinguishing Subtypes of Mutual Violence in the Context of Self-Defense:
           Classifying Types of Partner Violent Couples Using a Modified Conflict
           Tactics Scale
    • Abstract: The Revised Conflict Tactics Scale 2 (CTS2; Straus et al. Journal of Family Issues, 17(3), 283–316, 1996) is the most widely used measure for assessing the frequency of intimate partner violence (IPV). However, it has been criticized for not capturing the context in which IPV takes place. This study examined follow-up items to each CTS2 physical assault item asking to clarify how often the act was perpetrated in self-defense. A community sample of couples (N = 180) recruited for men’s recent violence toward women completed the project-modified Conflict Tactics Scale with Self-Defense (CTS2SD). The majority (69.5%) reported that the physical aggression in the past year was bilateral. On the follow-up items, 27% of men’s violent acts and over 22% of women’s violent acts were reportedly committed in self-defense. Men’s and women’s CTS2 physical assault perpetration scores, along with the percentage that were committed in self-defense, were entered into two-step cluster analyses. Cluster analyses revealed three subgroups of bilateral violence: Male Self-defense, Female Self-defense, and Mutual Violence. The Mutual Violent cluster reported the most frequent physical assault, injury, men’s controlling behavior and men’s arrest for domestic violence. Findings suggest that Straus’ (Behavioral Sciences and the Law, 30(5), 538–556, 2012) tripartite conceptualization of Man-only, Woman-only, and Both-violent couples is overly simplistic and fails to capture different types of bilateral aggression.

  • A Qualitative Evaluation of the Implementation of an Intimate Partner
           Violence Education Program in Fracture Clinics
    • Abstract: We developed an intimate partner violence educational program (EDUCATE) for health care providers which was implemented in seven fracture clinics by local IPV champions. The purpose of the program was to provide health care providers with the knowledge and skills required to comfortably identify and assist women experiencing IPV in the fracture clinic. The program consisted of an introductory video, interactive online modules, and an in-person presentation by a local IPV champion. The study aim was to qualitatively evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and perceived value of the program. We conducted semi-structured interviews with 10 champions and 23 participants and identified themes using a qualitative descriptive approach. Champions and participants expressed a strong satisfaction with the program. Champions also described several barriers and facilitators to program implementation. Additionally, we identified themes through analysis of interview data from champions (champion training, program delivery, and perceptions about program participants’ receptiveness to the training) and participants (value of the training experience, useful program content, desire for more education, and suggested program improvements). The program showed promising results, as both champions and program participants had overall positive experiences completing the program. Their suggestions for improvement have been used to refine the program, which is now publically available for educational purposes through

  • The Abusive Behaviour by Children- Indices (ABC-I): a Measure to
           Discriminate between Normative and Abusive Child Behaviour
    • Abstract: Child-to-parent abuse (CPA) research struggles to differentiate between disrespectful and abusive behaviour, leading some to conclude that 90% of children abuse their parents and rendering the concept essentially meaningless. The Abusive Behaviour by Children-Indices (ABC-I) was developed with the aim of differentiating abusive and non-abusive youth using a novel scoring procedure created from parents’ norms about abuse. The ABC-I was developed with parents of young people aged 14–25 years (N = 201) using index-development procedures. The structure of the ABC-I was validated with young people aged 14 to 25 (N = 587) using partial least squares-structural equation modelling. Using the parents’ sample, 40 items derived from the literature were reduced to 10 behavioural descriptors. Parents who identified their children as abusive were 89% more likely to have higher ABC-I scores than non-abused parents. The structure of the ABC-I was further reduced to nine items in the youth sample. The ABC-I identified a 12-month CPA incidence rate of 16%. The ABC-I is the first CPA measure to provide an evidence-based threshold for abuse that incorporates both frequency and severity of abuse to improve upon the identification of abuse involving psychological aggression or coercion.

  • Concordance in the Reporting of Intimate Partner Violence among Male-Male
    • Abstract: Intimate partner violence (IPV) among male couples is increasingly recognized as a public health concern. Research on IPV in opposite sex couples indicates frequent underreporting of IPV and high levels of discordance in reporting among dyads. Concordance studies inform refinement methods to measure the experience of IPV among dyads; however the lack of dyadic studies of male couples impedes our understanding of the extent to which IPV is differentially reported in male-male dyads. This study utilized baseline data from a randomized controlled trial of a behavioral intervention to optimize antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence among 160 sero-discordant male couples in three US cities and provides the first analysis of concordance in reporting IPV among male couples. Low degrees of concordance in the reporting of IPV were identified among male dyads, with a greater proportion of men reporting violence perpetration than experiencing violence. The greater reporting of IPV perpetration may be linked to adherence to concepts of masculinity. The results underscore the unique experiences of IPV among male couples and the need to reexamine current IPV measurement and intervention strategies.

  • Emotional Reactivity of Partner Violent Men with Personality Disorder
           during Conflict
    • Abstract: This study addresses negative affect, psychophysiological reactivity, and antecedents to psychological aggression within the context of intimate partner violence. One hundred and thirty-nine partner violent men were administered the SCID-II and participated in verbal conflict with their partner in a laboratory setting, during which time observed affect and psychophysiological indices were continuously recorded. Relative to men with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), men with borderline personality disorder (BPD) exhibited longer periods of anger (p = .03) and lower skin conductance reactivity (p = .04). Relative to men with no diagnosis, men with BPD exhibited less frequent distress (p = .04) and longer periods of anger (p = .02); men with ASPD exhibited shorter periods of anger (p = .03) and greater heart rate reactivity (p = .04). In men with ASPD, psychological aggression was likely to be preceded by partner positive/neutral affect. Treatment and research implications are discussed.

  • The Role of Accountability in Batterers Intervention Programs and
           Community Response to Intimate Partner Violence
    • Abstract: To describe how stakeholders involved in intimate partner violence prevention and treatment at different levels of the Social Ecological Model view accountability in relationship to the key actors at various levels in the intervention process and their role in addressing future incidence of IPV. We conducted 36 in-depth qualitative interviews with BIP facilitators, IPV advocates, socio-judicial officials, and local and state policy makers. Participants were recruited via snowball sampling and interviews were audiorecorded, transcribed verbatim, and coded in ATLAS.ti. Interviews broadly explored the challenges and best practices in facilitating BIPs, as well as perceptions on the etiology of IPV. The current analysis focuses on participant views related to accountability, and the role that various groups and institutions have in addressing IPV perpetration. Interview participants emphasized a multi-systems level approach to addressing IPV, one that required the responsibility of both programs and judicial systems in establishing IPV as a serious crime, and stressed the need to ensure accountability across all relevant stakeholders engaged in the broader scope of IPV intervention. In order to have a sustainable impact on IPV perpetration, stakeholders across the Social Ecological Model will need to utilize crucial intervention periods using a standardized response to improve outcomes for IPV survivors, perpetrators, families and communities.

  • Trauma’s Influence on Relationships: Clients’ Perspectives at an
           Intimate Partner Violence Intervention Program
    • Abstract: Although individuals who engage in intimate partner violence (IPV) report high rates of trauma exposure, it is unclear whether they perceive a link between trauma exposures and relationship problems, which traumas are seen as most influential, and whether such perceptions accurately reflect their relationship difficulties. Ninety-four men presenting for IPV intervention services reported their exposure to 22 adverse and potentially traumatic events (APTEs), and were asked whether these events had influenced the way that they think, act, or feel in relationships. APTEs were categorized based on whether or not they appeared to represent PTSD Criterion A traumatic events. Additionally, participants completed self-report measures of IPV use, partner injuries, emotional abuse, relationship problems, emotion regulation difficulties, and PTSD symptoms. Nearly half (43.6%) of the sample reported that one or more APTEs had influenced the way they function in relationships. Of the 92 reports of non-Criterion A APTEs, 42.4% were endorsed as relationship-influencing, whereas only 19.7% of the 310 occurrences of Criterion A APTEs were endorsed as relationship-influencing. The number of relationship-influencing APTEs reported was positively correlated with emotional abuse, relationship problems, emotion regulation difficulties, and PTSD symptoms. In contrast, the number of non-relationship-influencing APTEs reported was only correlated with emotional abuse. Findings from this exploratory study (1) demonstrate the ability of clients receiving IPV services to discern which APTEs have relevance to their relationships; (2) suggest the benefits of considering non-Criterion A APTEs; and (3) indicate the need for trauma- informed IPV intervention services.
